Shell starts production at North Sea Howe field

Nov 03, 2004 01:00 AM

Oil major Shell has launched production at the Howe field in the North Sea, some 100 miles east of Aberdeen.
The Anglo-Dutch group, which recently unveiled plans to merge its two operating boards, said it expects production to be around 13,000 bpd of oil. The Howe field is 60 % owned by Shell and 20 % each by Austrian oil and gas group OMV and Petro Summit Investment UK.

Shell bought the field as part of its acquisition of Enterprise Oil in 2002. Greg Hill, production director of Shell Exploration & Production Europe, said: "Shell acquired the Howe field as undeveloped acreage in 2002 and has brought it on stream as a gas-lifted sub-sea tie back to the producing Nelson platform in a £ 60 mm investment project.”
"We expect Howe to produce for around eight years," he added.

The Nelson platform exports oil to the Forties Unity riser platform and gas via the Fulmar gas line to the St Fergus terminal in the north of Scotland.
This is the second North Sea project that Shell has brought onstream in a month after the Goldeneye gas field launched production in October.
